An exquisite 4.12-carat Paraiba tourmaline displays its brilliant aqua color in this contemporary ring. Paraiba tourmalines are among the rarest and most exciting gemstones in the world, and this stone exhibits the signature vivid blue-green color seen only in the finest specimens. This dynamic pear-shaped jewel is paired with a 2.93-carat white diamond of D color with VS1 clarity characteristics. An additional 1.05 carats of round brilliant-cut diamonds surround the jewels and travel down the entire band of this hand-crafted platinum mounting.
Only first discovered in Brazil in 1989, Paraiba tourmalines are now found in only three regions of the world: Brazil, Africa and Mozambique. These stones owe their spectacular coloring to the presence of copper in the stone. For every 10,000 diamonds mined, only one Paraiba tourmaline is discovered. Due to the specific mineral composition of the Brazilian mine, nature has created a gemstone that stands out among all others and is considered even rarer than diamonds.Download the CertificationClick here to view a video of this item.
